Suicide Bereavement service

Bereavement Services in Surrey

Here at The Lucy Rayner Foundation, we specialise in bereavement services that provide practical support and advice for families bereaved by suicide. The loss of a loved one is always painful; however, studies show that for families affected by suicide, the feelings of grief can be especially complex and difficult to navigate.

When someone decides to take their own life, it can often come as an enormous shock, even to the people closest to them. The aftermath of suicide bereavement can feel overwhelming; however, it is important to know you are not alone and that there are people and organisations here to support you. Our suicide bereavement service is here for you and will provide a safe space for you to talk about your feelings, free of any judgement. We can also help you connect with other families who have shared experiences. 

Bereavement and Suicide Bereavement Support

Suicide is the main cause of death in the under 35’s in the UK, with 5 young people on average taking their lives each day. Each death has a ripple effect that touches countless other people, which is why specialist support is essential to help families move forward.

The Surrey Suicide Bereavement Service gives families in the Surrey area affected by suicide short, medium and long-term support to help them come to terms with their loss. The entire team has lived experience of suicide bereavement so can approach your situation with an un-learnable level of empathy and understanding. The support is tailored to each family’s unique circumstances. We will just be a listening ear if this is what you require and are always happy to come and visit you in the comfort of your own home.

Complete our Online Referral Form

Although our regular counselling service is only available for young adults aged between 14 and 39, we can offer counselling to anyone of any age if you have been referred via our Surrey Suicide Bereavement Service. Please fill out the form and we will be in contact with you shortly.

Losing a Loved One

There is no right or wrong way to grieve, however, we believe that with the right support system, families and individuals affected by suicide can come to terms with their loss in a healthy way that aids them moving forward in their lives.

We offer practical support in the aftermath of a family bereavement, which can include dealing with authorities, coroners’ inquests, financial worries, media intrusion and returning to work.

Our team can also help connect you with other families who have gone through similar experiences, which can be a source of comfort and support for the future.
